    sounds like the slumping economy caused another fire, I hope Bush and Cheney are happy.

    I am so sorry for your lost. I do hope you rebuilt. I have stop in the store many times and was always treated very nice and they always say thank you and hope you have a good day. their smiles are always welcome sight. Thanks is very rare from people nowdays.
